Russian oil sold in USA
Before this week, I'd never seen a Lukoil station in the United States. I haven't lived here in awhile. So, when I saw a Lukoil station advertised from the highway, I was curious to stop in, willing to buy their product.
Really, the station was not appreciably different from any other gas station. No Russians working behind the counter. No signs written in Cyrillic.
